Joe Dunne has refused to rule out a move to bring fans’ favourite Lomana Lua Lua back to Colchester United.

The U’s boss has stressed he has not made any official approach to reunite the exciting attacker with the U’s this summer.

But Dunne has always remained in contact with his former team-mate, who rose to prominence at Colchester between 1998 and 2000.

Lua Lua, 33, who is currently contracted to Turkish club Rizespor, fuelled speculation of a return to former club Colchester with a recent Twitter post.

In response to a U’s fan, he tweeted: “I’m coming back soon and it will be a dream come true for me #colu”.
